Applications for information need to be made to the department, authority or council holding the relevant information or most closely linked to the information. If you are unsure if Treasury is the agency you should apply to for the information you are seeking, email us.
You may submit an application in writing and include the information requested under regulation 5 of the Right to Information Regulations 2021.
A form is provided to assist you with your application:
Right to Information Application Form - current from 1 July 2023 to 30 June 2024 (DOCX 69Kb)
Post your completed application to:
Right to Information Officer
Department of Treasury and Finance
GPO Box 147
HOBART TAS 7001
Applications are to be accompanied by the application fee. This fee is 25 fee units, which is $44.50 until 30 June 2024.
You may apply to have the fee waived if:
- you are in financial hardship - we take that to mean that you are on income support payments (we would usually ask to see evidence that you are in receipt of Centrelink or Veterans' Affairs payments);
- you are a Member of Parliament and the application is in connection with your official duty;
- you are a journalist and the application is in connection with your official duty; or
- you are able to give us information which shows that the information sought is intended to be used for a purpose that is of general public interest or benefit.
